Biology; Neuroscience

Axon tracts that cross the midline of the brain. See also anterior commissure.

Biology; Neuroscience

Axons that link visceral motor neurons in autonomic ganglia to their targets.

climbing fibers

Biology; Neuroscience

Axons that originate in the inferior olive, ascend through the inferior cerebellar peduncle, and make terminal arborizations that invest the dendritic tree of Purkinje cells.

saccades

Biology; Neuroscience

Ballistic, conjugate eye movements that change the point of foveal fixation.

olfactory receptor neurons (ORNs)

Biology; Neuroscience
